Yup.

the RS3 seems to be the new tire to have as this season is coming to an end.....pretty much everyone in the street tire classes are running RS3's for nationals and bringing conti's for the wet (the tires I had on my e36)

the Z1's are still better in cooler temps than the RS3's although from what I've been reading the Z1's "feel faster" and are easier to "drive fast" where as the RS3's feel on edge and at the limit when you are really driving them fast.

not that it matters because SCCA changed the street tire class rules and as of next season tires have to be UTG180 or higher to be street tire legal (which RS3's are not) so hopefully hankook changes their mold to say 180 since the UTG rating is completely subjective and random anyways.
